Potentially contaminated chocolate products recalled

An Iowa-based company issued a voluntary recall on January 9 on some of their chocolate products after determining they might be contaminated with harmful salmonella. The bacteria could cause serious or fatal illness to consumers, an article of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration reported.

The recall affects various chocolate products manufactured by Palmer Candy Company. The recall was issued after Palmer Candy was notified by one of their suppliers that the milk powder used in the affected products supplied nationwide could contain salmonella. Neither the recalling company nor the FDA have received any reports of illnesses linked to the affected chocolate products. Consumers who might have purchased the chocolate were advised to discard it or return it to where they bought it for their money back.
